Our family-friendly digital Halloween celebration featured Sonia De Los Santos, Mario the Maker Magician, String Theory Theater along with a Kids Food Festival cooking class.
- Sonia De Los Santos: Born with a smile on her face (that’s what her mom says) in Monterrey, Mexico, and in 2007 started touring the world, singing in English and Spanish, playing guitar and jarana and lighting up the stage with Grammy Award winning group Dan Zanes And Friends before working on solo family music albums and being nominated in 2019 for a Latin Grammy.
- String Theory Theater: A small Baltimore based puppet troupe composed of artist Dirk Joseph and daughters Sequoia (20yrs) and Azaria (14yrs). Founded in 2016, String Theory Theater’s performance themes range from children’s puppetry to adult satire. Their shows employ various puppetry formats including hand puppets, rod puppets, crankies, shadow puppets, marionettes, toy theater, and large scale festival puppets.
- The Mario Show with Mario the Maker Magician: As seen on Sesame Street, Universal Kids, and live on tour with David Blaine, Mario the Maker Magician is a (normally) touring performer who has been creating online content in the form of his hit virtual show, The Mario Show, during this time away from the road. David Blaine calls him “the best kids magician in the world!!” Tune in and experience it for yourself!
